Access Museums Free Tomorrow
Written by Andrew-Rossi on September 21, 2018
The public can get free access to two local museums tomorrow.
The Buffalo Bill Center of the West and the Heart Mountain Interpretive Center will offer free admission to the public – with a ticket that can be found online – as part of Smithsonian Magazine’s 14th annual Museum Day event. These two institutions join over 1,800 other museums nationwide in opening their doors and letting the public in for free on Museum Day. Smithsonian Magazine created the event to promote access, equity, and inclusion at museums.
The theme for this year’s event is “Women Making History.” To carry this theme, Heart Mountain will host a free program at 1 p.m. on the life of Estelle Ishigo, whose art is currently featured in a special exhibit at the interpretive center.
The timing for this event coordinates well for the Buffalo Bill Center of the West, which is itself a Smithsonian Affiliate. Rendezvous Royale, a celebration of Western art, will be concluding Saturday.
Visitors can obtain free admission for this day only through the Smithsonian Museum Day program. Tickets provide admission for two people all day to the museum of their choice. Get your tickets online at smithsonianmag.com/museumday/museum-day-2018/
